Between July 20 and 27, 2014, athletes and teams from 13 Canadian provinces and territories, and 13 regions around the United States will converge on Regina, Sask., to compete in the North American Indigenous Games (NAIG).
In total, 5,000 athletes, 1,000 coaching staff, 3,000 volunteers and 200 cultural and entertainment performers are expected to attend the event.
“TransCanada is thrilled to sponsor the Regina 2014 NAIG,” says Andrea Jalbert, TransCanada Vice-President, Community and Sustainability. “Through our Community Investment program, we support organizations and initiatives that bring communities together. The NAIG will do just that — welcome athletes, teams and families from North American Indigenous communities as they celebrate excellence in sports and culture.”
